She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is nearing the halfway mark of its first season on Disney+, bringing Tatiana Maslany's Jennifer Walters into the spotlight for her MCU debut. While this series has delivered storylines with some big names from Marvel's past like Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner and Benedict Wong's Wong, there is substantial excitement for one other man - Charlie Cox's Daredevil.
The Man Without Fear was confirmed for his second Phase 4 outing in the MCU in the closing moments of She-Hulk's second trailer, although there are still no signs pointing to what his role in the series will be. His place as Marvel's other prominent lawyer makes his role even more intriguing, even besides the fact that this will be Cox's first time suiting up in the Daredevil outfit since he moved over from the Netflix shows.
Since it was set into stone that Cox would be a part of She-Hulk's impressive cast of characters, many have wondered how many episodes would feature Matt Murdock, even with plans for him to extend his stay in the Multiverse Saga. Well, according to the man behind the Man Without Fear himself, he won't take the spotlight away from Tatiana Maslany's leading heroine for very long at all.
How Many She-Hulk Episodes is Daredevil In?
Speaking with Variety at D23, Charlie Cox (aka the MCU's Daredevil) revealed how many episodes of She-Hulk the scarlet super will be in.
Cox said that his Marvel character will only appear in "one episode," noting how much fun his work on the show was as the tone was so "radically different" from what he had experienced in three seasons of the Daredevil Netflix series:
“What was really fun about being in She-Hulk, for this one episode is that obviously the tone of that show is radically different. And in order for my character to be… appropriate for me to be in that show, I had adapt, a little bit, my Matt Murdock.”
Daredevil Far From Done After She-Hulk
At its core, this is certainly some disappointing news considering how many people are looking forward to seeing Charlie Cox revisit one of his most iconic roles again in the MCU.
This will mean that all the footage fans have seen thus far from Cox will come in one week, including his flip over Jennifer Walters and his heartfelt conversation with her at the bar that was shown in the mid-season trailer. But that doesn't mean for a moment that it's a letdown.
She-Hulk was always meant to focus on Jennifer Walter's evolution as a hero, with the heroine's very nature from the comics throwing her into play alongside countless other important players from all walks of Marvel life. Cox will simply be yet another important piece to her maturation and journey as a whole, all before he takes on his own MCU adventures.
D23 confirmed that Cox will play a role in next summer's Echo series on Disney+ before he takes on the leading role in the highly-anticipated Daredevil: Born Again, giving him a whopping 18 episodes to make his own mark in the MCU's Phase 5. And although his stop in She-Hulk is only for one week, it won't be long before the red-horned hero brings the cheers from fans again elsewhere.
The first four episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law are available to stream on Disney+. Episode 5 will premiere on Thursday, September 15.
